On the way to Chambers pillar camp site. Dad had to collect the firewood. It was hot but it gets AWFUL cold at night.
Not AWFUL cold like you blokes know but AWFUL cold for us.
This was taken quite a few years ago now. Dad wouldn't be able to get up on the roof of the car like that now!! The scenery hasn't changed though .... still lots of nothing .... yaaaawwwwnnnnn!!
Chambers pillar .... looks a bit like your country Puffy and Coco Rose.
Now kidd'n that's not boring!! Yaaawwwwwnnnnn!!!
It's called Sturt's stony desert. Wonder why?????
Harri at Broken Hill NSW. The desert after rain. The red wildflower is Sturt's desert pea.
Get a load of Harri in his boots. He didn't mind wearing them. What sort of freak was he???? Outback Australia has burrs .... BIG burrs. Harri would rather wear the boots than suffer the burrs. Me ... I suffer the burrs. No boots for me!!
This was a giant red sand hill. It just popped up out of nowhere but then there was heaps of them. This being the first they had to climb it. It doesn't look all that big in the picture but apparently it was quite high.
Hmmmmmphh!! Now that's a red schnooter!!
This was still desert country but for once in a zillion years they had lots of rain.
Crikey ... thank goodness .... a beach! Next travelogue will be the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. No more deserts ... Yaaaaaaayyyy!!!! Ocean, give me ocean!!
Wanna run ... Love, Charlie!!
Those are some purdy wildflowers... we gets lots of wildflowers here in the Spring... hte blue ones you asked me about are called bluebonnets, a kind of lupine, and they blanket Texas in the spring... we also have Indian paintbrush, Indian blanket, showy primrose, and lots of others....ReplyDelete
Crikey Finley ... Thanks for the info .... Bluebonnets, aye? VERY pretty. Mum would love to see some more of your wildflowers. She LOVES them. She takes zillions of pics of them when we are away. Dad has to be VERY patient with her. Yours have great names ... Mum's never heard of them except for the primrose one.Delete
the, not hte... oops.ReplyDelete
Pawsome pictures! I luvs seeing da pictures of Australia!ReplyDelete
I had bootses for da winter when I lived in Bawston because of da ice and colds. I are glad I are back in Texas and don't have to wear dem no more.
Yeah Whitley ... those bootses are really the pits, aye??Delete
This is great Charlie! I luv lookin at yur piccies, efun if they do have Super Harri instead of yu.ReplyDelete
Whut kinda critters live in those places?
Do yu gots snakies and lizurds and what kinda bugs yu got?
Is there any kinds of farmin any place in Oz?
Yikes, I'm full of questions. Or jus' full of "it".
Crikey Zoe ... I dunno too much about the critters out there. Lots and lots of birds ... very beautiful ones too ... lots of parrots, black cockatoos, white cockatoos, galahs. HUGE flocks of budgies and cockatiels. Very pretty to see but almost impossible to photograph. Mum's tried but she's not good enough at it. Snakes ... YES ... lots and VERY deadly. We have some of the most deadly snakes in the world here but they are ok. They leave you alone if you leave them alone. Problem is I don't like leaving them alone. They move ... I chase them. Some dogs can catch them and not get bitten JRT's are very good at it. Mr. JackFreckles, Sir would be excellent. He would give those snakes hurry up. There's lizards too .... or goannas as we call them. they are HUGE. There's roos, and lots of emus ... oh and camels and dingoes. Dingoes are beautiful! Oh and there's BUGS ... lots of BUGS!!! Flies by the zillion, trillion!!!!! Keeps a lot of people out of the desert. Good says Mum ... she doesn't like crowds. Scorpions ... YUK! Lots of farming too. In the desert country it's mainly cattle properties and they are Gigantic. Thousand, and thousands of acres. Closer to the coast and more fertile areas it's mainly sheep and wheat but there are also lots of different grains being grown these days. Struth ... Zoe ... all the questions .... I'll have to write another post just to answer them. That was a short version just for you cause I LIKE YOU and you are NOT full of it. Well ... sometimes, maybe!!!!Delete
Thanks Charlie fur teachin me a bit 'bout yur country, shoot, Continent!Delete
I'm glad yu like me Charlie and don't think I am full of it.
Let's see, what else do I wanna know? I'll get my list of questions ready.
Crikey Zoe ... you knew it was a continent! That's impressive!!! I know you're not full of it, Zoe ... I was only joshin'Delete
I've got HEAPS of questions about your country! I just keep popping them in from time to time. It's all VERY interesting to me ... I love the UNITED STATES!!!
Charlie, loved the tour! My daddy has been in Australia. He spent 3 days in Sydney last year and his luggage spent a week at the airport there! BOL! Someday mom would really like to visit Australia!ReplyDelete
Crikey Buddy ... poor Daddy! Did he get around Sydney naked? I would have like to see that!! Did he like Sydney? I LOVE Sydney for a short while. It's very pretty and there's lots to do but I ALWAYS like being home at Noosa best. Maybe you could come and live at my house for a while and I could live at your house cause my Mum wants to see your country just like your Mum wants to see mine. It's a VERY big plane trip.Delete
Actually, daddy's bag arrived in Sydney, so that was fine. But it didn't want to leave! BOL! When it finally did leave Sydney, it went to Aruba first before coming back to Canada! This is funny now, not so much then!Delete
Hi Charlie - did you take one of our rocks home with you? BOLReplyDelete
I love visiting your part of the world. Harri really did have quite a red face after exploring that red sand hill. Keep the pictures coming - we love them.
Yeah Coco Rose and Puffy ... packed them in Greg Norman's jet after the party. Didn't you miss them?????Delete
Great pictures Charlie. Lots of open spaces to explore. Mom loves the flowers, me, I would hike my leg on them. Mom thinks I am a naughty pup, go figure.ReplyDelete
